CalendarMay Events

You’re sure to be on cloud nine the entire weekend of the Preakness Celebration Balloon Festival May 11-13, 2018!

This annual event features mass hot air balloon ascensions, two beautiful balloon glows at dusk on select evenings, and live entertainment on the main stage by Pressing Strings, Higher Education, Spencer Joyce, Rhett Repko, Shiftwork, and many more!

But if you really want to get carried away, balloon rides will be available for purchase! For those of you who are little more grounded, tethered balloon rides are also available. Not ready to leave the ground at all? Hop on into a Walkabout Balloon! Oh, and let’s not forget the food and craft vendors, music, and large Kid Zone for the whole family!

Admission is free, however, parking is fee-based. All the fun takes place May 11-13, 2018, at the Howard County Fairgrounds, located at 2210 Fairgrounds Rd., West Friendship, MD 21794.
